  • Jillian Mayer is an artist and filmmaker living in South Florida. Her video works and performances have been premiered at galleries and museums internationally such as MoMA, MoCA:NoMi, BAM, Bass Museum, the Contemporary Museum of Montreal with the Montreal Biennial (2014) and film festivals such as Sundance, SXSW, and the New York Film Festival. She was recently featured in Art Papers, ArtNews and Art Forum discussing identity, Internet and her artistic practices and influences.
  • York Chang (b. 1973, St. Louis, MO) is an interdisciplinary artist who uses forensic and archival information systems as supports for poetic gestures and alternate histories, in order to interrogate the aesthetic conventions of authority which often serve to blur the line between fiction and reality. He earned both his BFA (1996) and Juris Doctorate (2001) from University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA). York Chang lives and works in Los Angeles, CA, and is represented by Greene Exhibitions.

  • Oliver Kellhammer is an independent artist, writer and researcher, who seeks, through his botanical interventions and social art practice, to demonstrate nature’s surprising ability to recover from damage. His recent work has focused on the psychosocial effects of climate change, cleaning up contaminated soils, reintroducing prehistoric trees to landscape damaged by industrial logging and cataloging the ecology of brownfield ecologies. He currently works as a lecturer in sustainable systems at Parsons in New York City.
     
  • In this performance I try to summarize In search of past time with my own words, as a story of another time which reveals itself contemporary. I deliver my own intimate and personal perception of this book which radiates in my life. Each performance is another opportunity to explore different zones of the book, proceeding at random, inspired by an aleatory and fickle memory.

Graduate Public Practice

MFA Public Practice recent grad Christina Sanchez '12

Sanchez Juarez Studio

Born in Woodland, a farming town in California’s central valley, Christina completed her undergraduate degree in Studio Art from San Francisco State University. From 2002 to 2010 she worked at a small inner-city private school in Oakland. During that time, Christina took on various roles: she taught kindergarten, mentored teachers, served as vice principal, and organized the school’s first art program from the ground up. She now lives in Los Angeles and received her MFA from Otis.

In 2011, Christina initiated the Break/Pausa project as a dialogical investigation into the lives of immigrant restaurant workers living in Los Angeles. Break/Pausa is aimed at engaging the most hidden and marginalized people of this workforce, the “Back-of-House Workers.” Through informal interviews, performative interventions, formal performances and installations, and dialogue with advocacy organizations, the project seeks to uncover and archive worker histories as well as raise public awareness about pertinent workers rights and quality of life issues.

Christina has also assisted the artist Suzanne Lacy on a variety of projects, including the historic 1977 performance Three Weeks In May for the exhibition Doin’ It in Public: Feminism and Art at the Woman’s Building, which was a part of The Getty’s Pacific Standard Time Initiative. Christina also produced two exhibition videos for Suzanne Lacy and Pilar Riano’s La Piel de la Memoria Revivida, which were installed in the Museo de Antioquia in Medellin Colombia as a part of the Encuentro Internacional de Medellín 2011 (MDE11).
